Is it really necessary to make even more of this? Hayate no Gotoku! has been milked out. There’s nothing in there anymore, and that fact that the ratings have been down proves that. I refuse to believe that this is still popular in Japan. It’s certainly not worth a fourth season, that’s for sure.
The artwork, unfortunately, is still the same as ever. It’s not unsightly or anything like that, but it’s not really that impressive. Frankly, I get bored quite easily when watching this. That’s why I still have yet to finish the third season. I just couldn’t get myself to watch any more than I already have.
It’s the story that’s the problem here… How can they keep it interesting after all this time? It’s the fourth season now, yet they think they can keep things interesting by doing the same with different characters in the picture. It’s rapidly getting boring.
Unfortunately, I must give this a negative recommendation. The first season was good, the second wasn’t bad either, but it started going downhill as soon as the third season arrived. It seemed, to me at least, that they couldn’t keep things interesting any more. It got predictable and it sometimes seemed as though you were watching something you’d already seen before.
Plot Summary: Taking place after the events that occurred in Hayate no Gotoku! CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU. Hayate, Nagi and Maria return to their daily life at the Violet Mansion. Each episode will focus on a different character(s) and follow a different route for that episode.Read More
Oh no, it’s back. It’s actually back. A show so gay that it makes people like Andy Dick and Elton John spasm after only seeing the intro. It is almost like Japan’s trying to punish the world by creating this. Maybe the anime industry is trying to punish fansubbers somehow?
The artwork is still pretty much the same; a lot of girly guys with a lot of girly sceneries. It’s too bad that I really like to watch porn, otherwise I would’ve seriously considered to simply gauge my eyes out. It’s just that gay.
Do you know how sometimes something doesn’t seem that gay until you actually stick around for a little bit? Well, this story is very much like that. You start watching and you see a lot of gay-looking guys and gay-looking backgrounds, only to find out that it’s about to get gayer when those gay-looking guys actually start singing. The fact that they’re chasing after a girl doesn’t really change the fact that it looks so incredibly gay.
Are you a man? Do you like this show? You do!? Clearly, you are not a man. I can online imagine Andy Dick, Elton John and girly girls watching this show. I simply refuse to believe that guys actually watch this willingly.
Plot Summary: Nanami Haruka wants to be a song writer, so she attends an idol training school filled with beautiful bishounen. The school pairs each aspiring songwriter with an aspiring idol, but Haruka finds herself paired with 6 bishounen idols. To make things more difficult, Nanami is also not allowed to date any of her beautiful partners.Read More
Unbelievable… Hadena managed to make the final episode of OniAi their worst one yet. I completely lost count of how many translation errors there were during this episode. They’re normally not this bad. Still, it doesn’t really matter, seeing as it wasn’t much of an ending to begin with.
I won’t lie; I’m a little bit relieved that it’s over. There was no story whatsoever. It was all a big festival of strange comedy and fan service. I like my fair share of ecchi comedies, but I do want to see something with a sense of direction. The show needs to go somewhere. But no, OniAi never really made any progress in any of the aforementioned departments.
I, too, couldn’t believe that they continued last week’s episode where Anastasia went out without putting on any panties. I mean, how do you expect your viewers to accept this as the final episode? It’s quite clear that there probably won’t be another season, so why? I’ll tell you why; they were after the fan service. That’s what it’s all about. Comedy takes second place and romance has to stand at the back of the line.
I remember myself writing a review about OniAi when I had just seen the first episode. It was interesting at the time. It was something that could go in any direction, so I decided to stick around. But this… This was disappointing. I had high hopes for OniAi.
I’ll just end things here. There’s not much more that I could possibly say that would make this review any more positive. It’s a good thing the artwork is good, otherwise I probably would’ve dropped the show after the third episode or so. Quite frankly, the artwork, for me at least, was the only reason as to why I kept watching these past few weeks. I wanted to stop watching when they introduced Arisa to the mixture. Still, I stayed my ground and I survived until the bitter end!Read More
What the hell did I watch here? The entire episode makes no sense at all, and don’t even get me started about the ending. The ending, for me at least, was the “WTF”-moment of the week. It’s shocking how much the story lacks in OniAi.
The entire episode primarily revolved around the fact that Anastasia walked around with no panties on, merely because she’s too lazy to do some cleaning. That part alone was ridiculous, but the fact that she spent the entire episode worrying about people finding about her predicament was even worse.
It’s a shame that the story lacks so much. OniAi could’ve been so much better if it was going somewhere. We’re just going in circles, so there’s no actual result. It makes me wonder about how they’re going to end an anime that has no story and no sense of direction. It’ll be really lame if it ends with a few kisses or something like that.
Also, it’s happening again; that little brat is making those annoying sounds again. I have to admit that most of them were well-placed, plus she didn’t do it as often as before. I suppose I could consider this a form of progress, right? All that’s left is for her to be a little aggressive and, very much like Arashi, make Akito her own (pet).
I’ll end things here, unfortunately. There’s really not much left to say, not even about those scenes with Anastasia and Akiko as children. It was cute for a way, but they didn’t show us the good stuff. They didn’t show us how Arashi and Akito met, they didn’t show us how Anastasia fell in love with him. They showed us very little. Shame…Read More
I just finished watching this week’s OniAi, which was released a tad bit late this time. I must say that I’m not sure about it anymore. I suppose I have to learn to accept the fact that OniAi’s strengths doesn’t lie with the story. It’s all about ecchi comedy now, nothing more.
I had a feeling that they would milk out this whole Akito being sick business. It’s a perfect opportunity for the female characters to do all sorts of things to the sick and weak Akito. It’s a shame nothing happened, but it was quite nice to know a bit more about Haruomi and Akito’s past. Everyone knows that they met each other when they were children, we just didn’t know how.
I was actually surprised that Haruomi didn’t make use of the opportunity that was presented to her. She could’ve ‘made’ Akito hers. Just gentle nurse him, kiss him, and make sure he sweats out his cold one way or the other. It would’ve been perfect, and no guy could’ve ever resisted that, not even when the girl actually looks a bit like a boy (boyish girls can be quite the charmers too, you know).
I was actually a bit disappointed in Arashi to be very honest. She spent very little time with Akito. She rolled him back in bed and changed the wet towel on his head, that’s it. She, unlike the other girls, never did anything strange. That’s completely out of character. Let her tie him up, kiss him, lick his neck or make him uncomfortable by making her strip again. At least do something that’s within that character’s nature. This was just disappointing.
I almost jumped through the roof when Arashi got a bit of alone time with him. It was hilarious that Akito made Arashi the winner of their silly little caretaking contest, not knowing about the secret prize (a day alone in the house with Akito). I thought for sure that Arashi would try to rape the living hell out of him. Too bad, better luck next time…Read More
